Now that we've had some distance from the horrors...I used to wonder how we came up with the heart symbol. You know, like this. [He holds up both hands, thumbs and forefingers pressed together to form a <3 shape.] Doesn't look remotely like a real heart, so it had to come from somewhere.

It started with a fig or ivy leaf - if you squint, you can see it here-- [he holds up a book, and on one page, a fig leaf; he flips forward a few pages, and shows an ivy leaf] See? People were using these in art, as early as...I think the third millennium B.C.E., and by the middle ages, people had turned a leaf into a symbol of romantic, courtly love.

[He shrugs, then reaches forward - not to the device, but to his computer. He fiddles for a moment, then pulls the communicator down so that it gets a view of his computer screen.]



This is a cardioid. Actually, you could call it a lot of things, but it boils down to math being romantic. Happy Valentine's Day, I guess, a little late.

[And a couple hours later, he will add with none of the earlier levity,] David's disappeared. I assume his friends already realized. I'm sorry I didn't say something sooner.

[Private to Regina]

So...Can we just forget that whole thing happened?

[Private to Cissie]

Two years ago today. [Why yes, he's being vague to catch your attention.]

I actually think you're in a different category if you can nerd it up and beat up multiple goons simultaneously. Overachiever, maybe.
gotgreenmagic: (a-ha!)

What exactly are you trying to tell me here, Drake?
gotgreenmagic: (who me?)

[Are you hitting on her over there Tim. DANGER WILL ROBINSON.]

It's not overachieving when it's this effortless.
gotgreenmagic: (PB - Yeah?)

[It's not going to stop her borderline flirting either so uh yay hypocrisy?]

You just can't learn to be as beautiful and scary as I am. Whereas I'm assuming you put at least some work into learning how to kick ass and take....college-level math.

What the heck is --

You know what, I don't want to know. You've made your point.
gotgreenmagic: (I am critical of this idea)

At least I guess I know who to call now if I need some urgent trigonometry doing.
